The 2016 one-day self-guided tour offers an exclusive look inside nine historic Vancouver homes, ranging from charming Craftsman homes built for working families to grand estates offering luxury to well-to-do early citizens, each home on the tour offers inspiration and intrigue.
Awaiting a plan to see it repurposed, the historic South West Marine Drive estate home, WilMar will be open in its current state, untouched for almost a decade and unfurnished. This is a singular opportunity to see it before any work begins.
You will also not want to miss the one-of-a-kind Barber Residence. Built in 1936, it is one of the city’s few examples of Art Moderne residential architecture. This home is a landmark for innovative architectural design, beautifully restored and revitalized by Architect Robert Lemon and Designer Robert Ledingham..
Those with a love for global art will also not be disappointed as we see how one owner has used their collection of Asian and African artwork and furnishings to blend seamlessly with an almost entirely untouched 1913 Craftsman home.
